The greatest and most valuable gift is the power to CHOOSE whether knowledge ennobles or debases one's Spirit.....
......with its use.
......and know the One Who loves us so much that He has freely given us the infinite power of His Own Spirit to love Him and EACH OTHER BACK.....by OUR choice....
.....for ourselves, BY ourselves.

Correct perspective, indeed! The power to choose is the true power. One's choice in persevering is a choice of insistence, which is a choice of pure focus. And I remember listening to audio tapes of good ol' Zig Zigler in the 1990s. He was a very motivational person.
